All three are medical charges you must pay out of your own pocket, even if you have insurance. Deductibles are a specific amount you must accumulate and pay each year of covered health services before benefits are provided by your carrier. Plans may also have separate individual and family deductibles and/or deductibles for separate services. Copayments are a set fee the member pays to providers at the time services are provided. Copays are applied to office visits, emergency room visits, hospital admissions, etc. Coinsurance is a form of cost sharing. After your deductible has been met, plan will begin paying a percentage of your bills. The remaining amount, known as co-insurance, is the portion due by the patient.

VSD Monroe offers a wide variety of medical dermatology services and can treat acne, skin cancer, rosacea, psoriasis, and moles. Yet, our services don’t end there. VSD Monroe also offers a full-service med spa. Whether you are looking for injectable fillers like Botox® and Dysport®, laser resurfacing, CoolSculpting®, or the FemTouch vaginal rejuvenation laser, VSD Monroe’s skilled providers can craft a treatment plan for you.   

FemTouch™ vaginal rejuvenation is a pain-free treatment that is used to correct vaginal laxity, dryness, feminine pH, and bladder leakage. Treatment takes less than 15 minutes and is minimally invasive. For best results, patients should receive their treatment in a series of at least three sessions.  

FemTouch™ results are long lasting. However, patients may desire a touch-up treatment every year or two. 

For more information about FemTouch™ click here 

Laser hair removal uses a light to heat and destroy the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin. While the procedure permanently reduces hair, there are certain steps to take in order to increase the effectiveness of laser hair removal. 

  • Closely shave two or three days before the appointment 
  • Avoid waxing, tweezing, and threading for at least four weeks prior to treatment 
  • Avoid sun exposure or self-tanning products for two weeks prior as tanned skin cannot be treated safely 
  • Notify your doctor if you have a history of cold sores or genital herpes 
  • Discontinue the use of retinoids in the treatment area seven days prior to treatment 

SilkPeel facials leave your skin smooth, hydrated, and bright. Many benefits come from a SilkPeel facial and can improve the appearance of skin in many ways. One benefit is the clarification of oily, blemish, and acne-prone skin. SilkPeel facials can moisturize your skin and restore those dry, flaky patches. Lastly, SilkPeel facials can brighten dark patches of skin.  

Both Dysport® and Botox® are the preferred treatment options to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles around the body, particularly the face. However, the two injections have several differences you should consider when looking to use them as treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. The following are differences between the two injectables: 

  • Dysport® is more diluted than Botox and may require the patient to schedule more treatment appointments 
  • Dysport® spreads across a wider area than Botox®, and is mainly used for larger treatment areas like the forehead  
  • Botox® stays near its injection site and is preferred for use in smaller areas such as around the eyes
